BENGALURU:The website of the Karnataka State Higher Education Council was hacked on Thursday by a group calling itself Clinkz48.
The homepage of the website (http://kshec.ac.in/) has an image of a man laughing and holding a wine bottle saying: “Cyber Team Rocks” and the message “Hacked by Clinkz48.”
The hackers have also said: “Your data belongs to me. F*** Your System India, Noob!!”
When contacted, Council vice-chairman S V Ranganath said, “I am busy elsewhere and the executive director is also out of town. I am sure they would have attended to that as the executive director runs the show.”
